Clarify contributors vs author in Special Roles and Capabilities

Description

The Special User Roles and Capabilities doc references an Author entry in a plugin's readme.txt. I think this should read Contributors to match the entry in the example readme standard?

Resulting list of WordPress.org usernames appear in the Authors section of the current listing page, Contributors & Developers section of the new directory page.

The new plugin directory listing has an Author byline, pulled from Author and Author URI in the plugin's PHP doc block. Extra marketing but not a user role or capability. The current documentation might confuse these entries.

Possible bonus feature: mention if values are pulled from trunk or stable tag.
